CNN reporting John Edwards is dropping out of the race
Posted by: mcq on Wednesday, January 30, 2008

Mr. "15%" has apparently seen the light and has given up his "king/queen maker" quest. Knowing him, I can only guess that means he's reached an accommodation with both rival campaigns which give him a role in either administration should they win. He will, of course, still gather delegates on Super Tuesday, even if he does drop out which will still give him some sort of a position during the Democratic convention. Whether or not it will be meaningful or decisive for one of the other candidates remains to be seen.

I was talking to a socialist aquaintance of mine, and we both seem to have the same idea about Edwards.

If he dropped out before Super Tuesday, Obama is the candidate it helps the most. After Super Tuesday it would help Hilary by siphoning some populast voters from Obama.

I think he’s betting on an Obama/Edwards ticket.

What have the two Americas come to?! Can’t he sue someone to stay in the race?

Obama-Edwards is possible; if Clinton gets the nomination, she really needs to choose Obama in order to mend the rifts in the Democratic party. McCain might do well with Thompson, since he seemed to really excite those who dislike McCain. They might hold their noses and vote McCain if Thompson is on the ticket.

except the media will portray that as the dinosaur ticket.

Think again.

I was thinking she needed someone like Richardson, you know, someone who would appeal to moderates and who actually has qualifications.

Why, do you think blacks jump ship if she doesn’t select Obama?

Not even Fred, Hunter, or Tancredo (sp) could get me to vote McCain.

With that lovefest between McCain and Guilliani, it pretty obvious who is on top of McCain’s list for VP.

If his race against Romney gets rough, he’ll make a strategic pick though and probably give Guilliani a cabinet position. My guess would be Huckabee. He was the original Anti-Romney Candidate, still may have some use.

I wonder what the TradeSports odds would be on "Clinton living a year" if she were to pick Obama as VP ? What about the other way around ?

Bush picking Cheney virtually assured him safety.
